Larry Ebersole " Finally, it’s safe to talk about the start of spring in Kremmling
April 7, 2009
Now I can officially look forward to the spring weather as the next time it shows up should signal the real change of seasons. I refused to let myself do so earlier as I would just regret the return to the winter weather I knew was coming.
I do wonder if the false spring woke any of the bears or other hibernating animals up. I am not sure the Easter Bunny is used to running from hungry animals waking up with a winter hangover. Assuming everything is going well for the busy bunny, the weather should be good for the Short Stop Easter Egg hunt in Kremmling on April 11.
The candy- and toy-filled eggs will be hidden on the grounds around the Cliffview Assisted Living Center and the Senior Apartments. There are several sponsors subsidizing the Easter Bunny’s efforts this year. The complete list can be found on the Kremmling Chamber’s Web site.
I would like to thank all the people who plow the snow in the Kremmling area. Especially since the long absence of snow had to make it hard to stay in business. As soon as this last storm hit the plows were out in force making sure the rest of us could get around.
I know some people make a living out of moving the snow and others are really great neighbors who have plowing equipment they like to play with. Either way they make life up here just that much easier.
Our dog Bunji has a scar on his left side left from a bite wound he received from another dog while he was waiting to be adopted. Pet Pals stepped in and took care of the vet bills so Bunji could come home with us, and it has been a happy story since then.
Grand County Pet Pals and Dr. Mike Brooks are sponsoring a Helping Hounds Clinic on Thursday, April 9, at Brook’s Veterinary Services in Granby. The clinic’s purpose is to provide microchips for your dog in case he leaves home without leaving a note.
The microchips are about the size of a grain of rice, which doesn’t come close to reflecting their worth in finding your wayward pet. By participating in the clinic you and your pet are certainly benefiting from it while at the same time helping Pet Pals continue their work, as part of the proceeds will go to help them. The clinic will take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., and the first 50 microchips and registration will be discounted.
Make sure to stop in and visit our Thrift Shop in its new location in the Town Square. The store has had its grand re-opening and is ready to settle in for what should be a long and successful life in its new home.
